wow. “Christian” today gives bad name to Christianity with reams of “articles” like this one that throws away eons of either/or logic undermining their grasp of truth per se.

must have android application for hold sanity

Filed under: android,CIO,Concept,DARPA,How To,SoftWare,voip — Sagacious Himself @ 9:20 am

Sure, mid conversation one could mash the speaker button and switch the call to speakerphone while on hold

…. but there is a f/OSS application [on google code] that uses the proximity sensor to do this automatically for you.  What’s more is has a toggle switch to engage only when phone is set upon a mostly horizontal surface:

Take phone from face, set on table… voila speakerphone on hold

SpeakerProximity

http://code.google.com/p/speakerproximity/

.

there be one gui bug: speaker button does not illuminate when the application toggles speakerphone on by proximity sensor

Plays well with IMSdroid

I want a steganography tool to host non-image files in blog provider’s free image hosting

Filed under: circumvention,Concept — Sagacious Himself @ 4:05 am

It would need to generate a noise image large enough for whatever file, and as part of the image contain the file name, and optionally date stamp, and MD5 hash of the contained file.  Not to be used to “hide” files, but encapsulate them for easy retrieval.

Preferable output is PNG because most image hosts do not try to resample or recompress PNG.

BROKEN junk should have its own ebay category… acounts selling BROKEN junk in wrong category should be suspended

Filed under: BULLSHIT,Concept,DARPA,Justice — Sagacious Himself @ 8:36 pm

Tired of finding stuff listed as broken, “not working”, or “as is” with no assurance of functionality, too?  REQUIRING ALL sellers tick a box assuring functionality on penalty of suspension would allay the issue.

NOT-checking the box would force the item into a separate category of brokenness and NOT show in standard search results

ARRRG

Condition used?   Obviously used to death.  wrong infernal category, cretin

firefox extension: slow loading page element nuke

Filed under: AdNoyances,category euthanized,Concept,Tagtastic — Sagacious Himself @ 12:15 am

There needs to be an extension to ‘speed up’ slow loading site pages by nuking elements (or temp blocking) that fall well below the average page element load time — or a specified load time.  No more waiting on cross domain loads, bloat, or objects in high demand.  Once could set a global threshold and thresholds for individual domains or domains+paths

I swear I thought of it this morning first.. or digg is reading my mind… and they almost perfectly implemented my sticky diggs

What’s digg missing?  Sticky diggs.

I thought of it this morning in the shower.  But I was too lazy to bug them in the morning.  Lo and behold there’s something very close today: “My #1”.

Sure, I have a nearly eerie power to sway but I didn’t think it worked across vast distances on people I’ve never meant.  I must be getting more powerful.

plans to solve the high gas price problem

(1) mine US oil! — who cares about a few deer. animals have zero rights.. except the right be be tasty

(2) cut taxes — always a great plan

(3) cut spending — I can’t print my own money and as the state only
has the right I do by extension has no right to print new money to
spend either

(4) dump liberalist favored government programs — funding evil is never wise

(5) “use less” is not a plan

(6) ignore liberalists with “secret plans”

hahaha…. now for an econazi perspective:

Why not just remove gas tanks from cars?  Then no one would be able to use gas.  Problem solved.  woo. 

No, wait, let’s remove personal freedom and dictate each must drive State Brand ™  TheCar.  It will be solar powered exclusively.  That will reduce night time traffic considerably.

Orr just pass a law demanding that machines be built to make gas in one’s garage?  Or by edict declar that the properties of gas are now such that it produces better milage (UN style)

Start a letter writing campaign and whine until suppliers lower price.  Threaten that you won’t be putting gas in your ethanol car to teach them a lesson.

Walk more.  It’s environmentally friendly.  Be sure your shoes contain no oil products and CERTAINLY no animal products!  Avoid walking on plants.  You might hurt their feelings.

So little time, so many great solutions to force on people!

we need carrot control…. and to outlaw pools and highschool football practice

Filed under: category euthanized,Concept,Gross Politix,Humor — Sagacious Himself @ 12:36 pm

“A 46-year-old man is accused of assaulting
his wife with a carrot, causing her to lose sight in one eye,” reports the
Associated Press from Monroe, Conn.:

Pamela Vecsey, 46, underwent six [hours] of surgery
after being hit in the left eye with the vegetable Saturday night, but doctors
were not able to restore her vision, prosecutor Stephanie Damiani said.

The couple was arguing when Roderick Vecsey tossed
the carrot, Damiani said.

It is a scandal that thanks to the carrot lobby,
Americans–even the mentally ill, convicted criminals and stalkers–are able to
buy these dangerous weapons without so much as a license or background check.
We need carrot control! It’s the only way to deal with crime at its roots.

Both swimming pools and highschool football practice kill more people than accidental shootings.  Let’s outlaw both pools and highschool football practice.
